Daily Suncare 101: What your everyday routine must include

[Q] Do I REALLY need to use Sunscreen everyday?

[A] YES! We cannot emphasize how important daily sunscreen usage is. It doesn’t matter if it's summer or winter or whether you're indoors or outdoors, you must use sunscreen. Various studies have also proved that not only does daily sunscreen usage prevent you from cancer, it also prevents premature aging and photodamage in your skin. 

[Q] But why do I have to use sunscreen when I’m indoors?

[A] This is a good question! There are many different kinds of rays in sunlight and some of them are extremely harmful; The ultraviolet (UV) rays are the most damaging to your skin. These UV rays are extremely sneaky and can easily penetrate through glass windows, glass doors or even your car window and windshield. So even if you’re spending your day working from home or only going out for a quick grocery run, do not forget to use sunscreen on all areas that are exposed. This includes your face, neck and chest. 

[Q] When should I use sunscreen in my routine?

[A] To start off, you only need to use sunscreen in your AM routine. Skincare routines are extremely subjective to different skin types but luckily enough, the sunscreen part of it isn’t too complicated. You should use a liberal amount of a broad-spectrum sunscreen at the end of your skincare routine and before your makeup routine. Consider it a bridge between the two. 

[Q] What does “Broad-Spectrum” mean?

[A] The two harmful kinds of UV rays are UVA and UVB rays. A broad-spectrum sunscreen protects you from both, UVA and UVB. 

[Q] What kind of sunscreen should I use for daily application?

[A] We thought you’d never ask! Dermatologists recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of  SPF 30 for daily sunscreen use. We have not one but two sunscreens to offer you for everyday use:

→ Our Resting Beach Face Sunscreen has a serum-like consistency and is packed with Hyaluronic Acid to give your skin a dewy finish. This broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen is infused with Green Tea and Spinach Leaf extract to help strengthen your moisture barrier. The best part?
